Icelandic photographer Kristjan Unnar Kristjansson – also known as ‘Kiddi’ – has spent the last nine years capturing the kaleidoscopic light show in his native homeland.
‘No words can properly describe the experience. Even though I’ve seen them now and again throughout my life, I’m still awe-inspired and flabbergasted every time they show up.’
Also known as the northern and southern polar lights, the natural light displays are governed by sun storms and are usually observed at night.
In northern latitudes the effect is known as the Aurora Borealis, named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas.
